Default 7950 GT/GX2 configuration problem

With the following configuration:
SuSE 10.2,
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9631-pkg2.run
VGA card: NVIDIA 7950GX2, 7950GT, 7800GTX

Command
sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
completes without error, however, the VGA card is recognized as VESA Framebuffer graphics for 7950GX2 and 7950GT, only 7800GTX can be recognized
correctly. Is this a problem on SuSE/sax2 ?

I also tried the new driver (9746), the sax2 command failed for not finding xgl and nvidia modules.

I have the identical card (7950 GX2) also running under a 64bit OS (Ubuntu) with the 9742 driver. Works flawlessly. sax2 is SUSE specific isn't it? You might get better advice on the SUSE forums.....

Default Re: 7950 GT/GX2 configuration problem

I hava a 7950 GX2 in Fedora Core 6 x86_64 and I am running the 9629 drivers and it runs fine.
The only problem I have is that any changes I make in the NVIDIA X Server Settings application dont seems to stick for some reason. It always switches back to default.
Does anyone know if switching to the 9746 drivers will fix this?
Or what the problem may be?

hi there!


i had the same problem with SLED10 and openSUSE 10.2. i had been fighting for a week and finally succeded.
i had nvidia logo, i had correct xorg.conf, but no 3d at all. after reading a lot of nvidia-linux stuff i just ran into this: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-t.html

after running "nvidia-settings" from terminal my entire xorg.conf has changed into something new. At the SaX2 the "Enable 3d" is still grey, but i could turn on the Desktop effects (whatever its name is, i dont have an English version) and it is WORKING!

I hope u manage to achieve the same result. Please write a short reminder!
